Remove The Misplaced Focus In Our Educational System

It is the general notion of every one that children should be educated suitably and should be made to understand situations. This will help them to behave appropriately. But, in reality, every grown-up person should learn a lot from kids. Every behavior of kids has lessons embedded in them. If you learn from their behavior and in turn, guide them suitably to learn life’s lessons, they will blossom into very important people in the society. Psychologists also opine that we should prepare our children for facing the world. They should be made to understand every mood of others and how people can react in various moods.In fact, children get parallel education at home and also from the society in which they live. Though the importance of academic education can not be questioned, the education that is offered by life itself and other human beings is much greater than the academic education they get. What is learned from life and others can never be forgotten. But, unfortunately, there seems to be a wide gap between what is taught in schools and colleges and what is learned outside these institutions. Due to the power of the “external education”, what is learned in academic institutions is relegated to the background. That is the reason we find many highly intelligent children taking to arms, becoming terrorists and indulging in Internet thefts and many other nefarious activities even after getting a good education.This goes to prove that the educational system that is prevalent now needs a complete overhauling. When parents send their children to educational institutions, they have only one aim. Their goal is that their children should get very good qualifications, settle down in a good job, a profession or a business and earn well. They can not be faulted but chasing material success alone makes the lives of the children “empty”. Even children who sizzle throughout their academics fail to achieve success in their lives. On the contrary, we find many school drop-outs achieving huge success. So, our contention that academic education alone can help our children to achieve success is fundamentally flawed.Our educational system should be suitably modified so that we produce good human beings who can channel pressure to their advantage and who aim to achieve bigger things like mental excellence. Our children should have the required courage, energy and conviction for refusing to hold back when situations warrant their services or presence. They should have the astuteness to manage their time judiciously so that they can contribute to the society while striving for personal achievements also. They should be mentally strong and be capable of matching the demands of life, that may be unforgiving at times.Life is calling and these children can offer a lot to the society and this will satiate their quest for personal success as well as improvement of the society in which they live.

How to Create a WordPress Blog For Your Internet Business Opportunity

For example, if you wrote a blog post about “the difference between top tier direct sales and MLM,” your blog could show up in Google’s results when someone searches for “top tier direct sales”. Blog post entries are generally displayed in reverse-chronological order.
